I think people are way overreacting. Was it planned? Totally, he had rehearsed those jokes. Was it out of character? For promo!Zac sure, but if we're talking real!Zac I don't think it was. He's a person, he's not a brand. He's gonna fuck up and be hypocritical and be douchey at times. But on levels of douchiness, its not like he was fucking some stripper sideways onstage. He went to a stripclub with friends. He didn't blow 2k and he called his girlfriend. What is so douchey about that?

If we're talking presentation, I think he did fine too. It was obvious that he prepped but would you really have wanted him to go in unprepped to mumble and bumble his way though? I thought he maintained enough humility and slight embarrassment that it wasn't douchey at all, and I'd hazard to say that this is probably the way Zac is in private. People need to remember that a good 85 - 95% of what we see of Zac is what he wants us to see, and not the whole package.

I could go on but honestly I'm frustrated at the reactions here. Have some faith in him, even if he is doing some stupid shit right now.

You articulated a lot of what I've been trying to say so much better than what I've been able to, thank you. <3

Aww thanks. I was so annoyed that I wasn't sure I was articulating well but I'm glad you think it did. :D

i think it is important to remember that we have faith in him. and the only reason we are talking about it is because we have concerns. i don't think it makes us less of fans or assholes of some sort.

i feel like what we are actually trying to say is we don't know everything about him. that we don't understand why what is happening is happening and it is odd and weird and maybe not so good... and we want to talk about it. maybe it comes off as overreacting but idk who else to talk about it with so here i am.

i've said it elsewhere but i'll say it again: going to a stripclub is not the douchey thing. the douchey thing is saying that he's smarter than his peers then doing this which seems very unsmart.

universal has been pushing this film to religious groups and mom bloggers... the people most likely to be put off by a visit to a strip club by the film's star... that makes his choice pretty dumb. but it is his choice and i'm ok with that. but my thing is like, maybe he needs to not be so 'i'm above bad decisions' as he has painted himself in so many interviews lately so he's not boxed in when he does something dumb. i think most people would say he comes off as hypocritical to say i'm smart then do something not really that smart.

that's my point.

personally i think he handled it pretty well on jk. he obviously charmed a lot of people, if ontd is anything to go by.

I don't think he's said he's smarter than his peer or that he's ever said absolutely that he doesn't drink or party, he just says he usually does it in private. But does 1 time of it happening in public really deserve all of this hullabaloo? If it was a pattern then I could understand worrying and being irritated but not when its one time. And I do think that the fact that he doesn't do it often does give him some slack as far as how people perceive him. Its a little glimpse into the real Zac and I'm sure he did it to heighten interest.

And you know, it might not have been his idea at all. Its not really something I see him coming up with, though he certainly went along with it, so maybe the blame should go more to his team, not him.
